COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised. Seasonal - Spring.
"Bound to satisfy".
Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added. Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!

Beerheart65 (1116) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2012
Light amber with one finger head. Hoppy aroma has citrus mixed with exotic fruits, bit caramel malting. Nicely round bit oily feel, medium body, quite soft carbonation but not flat, bitterness balances sweetness, finish is bitter and fruity, taste has more evident malting that is nuanced also nicely: nuts, bread, caramel. Bit butter here also and slight spicyness. Nice and balanced, good flavors.

500 ml bottle. 4.4%. L1347H. BB Dec 12. (K-Citymarket) Espoo, Finland.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Floral and fruity hops, some bitterness and biscuity maltiness in aroma. Nice! Flavour is floral hoppy with moderate bitterness, sweetish malt and biscuits. Tasty. I like this.

mjs (5327) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 3, 2012
(Draught at Hilpeä Hauki, 20121103) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, fruitiness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A good example of an English bitter.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle from Tesco or was it Asda :-) Poured a light golden brown with a frothy white head. A spicy, slighly floral citrus aroma with a medium bitterness that hits the palate right away, but fades quite quickly. An extremely refreshing golden summer ale which will appeal to almost anyone that drinks it and would probably match quite nicely with several food dishes too. I know it goes well with chocolate, but coming from a chocolate addict I will say that about everything!

MichaelAwesome (5729) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Nose is citrus and earthy. Aroma has some hops, citrus and a bit honey. Taste is first full of flavours then hits you with a sharp bitterness in the end. Quality bitter but too bitter in the end for me. Still a very good one.
